    “A Judas goat is a trained goat used in general animal herding. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them to a specific destination. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared.”

    In a list of things Americans should do to protect themselves and others against coronavirus, Vice President Mike Pence on Friday mentioned everything health officials say Americans should do — hand washing, avoiding touching the face, disinfecting frequently.
    He pointedly did not mention two of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s main pieces of advice— wearing face masks and social distancing.
    Pence was speaking at the first news conference of the White House Pandemic Task Force has held since April 27. He did not wear a mask during the news conference. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/06/26/pence-mention-face-mask-distancing-coronavirus-protection/3265351001/

    The study, published in The Lancet Psychiatry, is the first systematic review of suspected brain complications since the coronavirus swept the world, its authors said.
    The study was small and may show only a correlation between the conditions. But researchers said it provided important data for future research. https://www.businessinsider.com/severe-covid-19-linked-to-strokes-and-psychosis-preliminary-study-2020-6
